About the Eastside Brick Art Foundation
The Eastside Brick Art Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and betterment of fine arts in the Flathead Valley. The foundation seeks to provide opportunities to showcase local talent and encourage young artists through scholarship and school funding.

And from the Hockaday:

Artists and artisans working and living in the Flathead Valley are invited to participate in the Local Color Studio Tour & Sale on Saturday, October 2, 10am-8pm. Host artists will demonstrate their skills for visitors and engage the viewer in the creative process. This will be a juried event for artist studios and galleries with a working studio on the premises. A separate entrance is required.

To promote the Studio Tour, the Hockaday Museum of Art will present the exhibition, Local Color. The show will provide participating artists an opportunity to display their work at the Hockaday from September 23—October 29th. The Local Color Opening Reception will launch the Studio Tour on Thursday, September 30th, 5-7 pm.

For more information, contact Jane Latus Emmert, [email protected] or download an application from the Hockaday’s website or call the Hockaday Museum of Art, 406-755-5268. Deadline for applications is June 15, 2010.

If this sounds right up your alley, be sure to give them a call as soon as possible.
